Remote Server Administrator Tools (RSAT) is a Windows application that remotely manages the roles and features running on Windows Server with snap-ins. It makes managing multiple servers easy, as it allows the management of Windows Server roles and features from one place. It's compatible with Windows OS versions Vista, 7, 8, 8.1, and 10.
